into year end absolutely. also the election. i am of the opinion that obama is probably going to win and the market would rather see romney. if that turns out to be true, i don't think that causes panic but we lose some of the enthusiasm. it's been a great year for stocks. i think we start to lose some of that enthusiasm if in fact obama goes onto win. >> partly this market reversal here from very strong rally mode earlier in the year on central bank easing and fed stimulus has turned as a result of earnings. herman, let's talk yahoo! for a moment. waiting on numbers to come out. are you expecting yahoo! to have seen what some of the other technology names have seen and that is a slowdown? >> for yahoo! it's different. obviously google's earnings last week set up an expectation to be not that high for yahoo!. and yahoo! is going through a change in regime whether it's the ceo, cfo, as well as head of sales. not expecting much for numbers there. the focus will be more on the company strategic direction and growth opportunities going forward. >> david, what do you think? >> what's more

aggressively than the commodities market. i have a chart i'd love to pull up now. if you follow president obama's numbers on trade and overlay with the goldman sachs commodity, the fortunes are almost the exact same chart. the market's worried that if romney gets elected, all this money printing, the quantitative easing, that stuff might be over. it could be bad news for the commodity trade. >> all right. we'll leave it there. thanks, everybody. really appreciate it. we'll keep watching this market, which ended high we are a late burst of buying. we have breaking news on decker's outdoor. >> maria, this is what i like to call a who knew what when story. if you look at deckers right before the close, the stock took a really big hit. down quite a bit in the 30 minutes before the market closed. company came out with results. they were okay. it's the guidance that counts. you've got to listen to these numbers. the company now says sales in 2012 would increase by 5%. that's compared with its earlier guidance of 14%. eps will be down 33%. earlier guidance, down 9%. so it will be interesting to see ho

/unquote certainty. >> if you think president obama wins re-election, we sort of muddle along and not headed towards growth then? >> again, i think if you look at what's happened over the course of the last four years, but particularly the last 18 months, we've seen significant desell race in growth. i think that has much to do with the set of policies that been problematic in terms of job growth in this country and also fundamental growth of overall gdp. >> can governor romney win then do you think? it's an incredibly tight race. >> you tell me. i think people have seen the real mitt romney, the individual who has had an incredible track record of success, solving complex problems both in the private sector at bain years ago but also in the public sock tore in terms of saving the salt lake city olympics and governor of the state of massachusetts during a point in time when we had incredible bigt situation in the state and he was able to solve that. >> that was one of the points he made at the debate. he was able in the face of different parties, he was able to -- >> go ahead. >> i was going to say,

this is related to the fiscal live cliff at all. if it was, last night president obama indicated there's no way we're going to go over that, he's not going to let the spending cuts happen. what about the tax increases? the day's numbers i think was more a function of the fundamentals, bad earnings, specifically top-line revenue growth was really slow. >> but how is he going to stop the spending cuts? i didn't understand that from the debate last night. how is he going to stop the spending cuts from going through when that's the law? which, by the way, he signed. it'sautomatic. how does he stop that? >> they would have to craft a deal in order to have it paid for. one of the ways is to allow the payroll tax cut to expire and also to perhaps phase out the extended and emergency unemployment insurance benefits. that would provide enough revenue saved in order to offset any of the sequester. so it's pretty easy to do the math in order to avoid the cuts, but it's still going to be painful. if you think about what that might mean for consumer spending going forward if you're a typical worker who all the
